deductions since the campaign. mitt romney ran on this. so did paul ryan. so it doesn't this weekend like a lot of movement there. despite painting the picture they are getting wobbly on taxes. >> what is going on now is positioning and posturing. you have to get the big boys here. there are four people and you saw them a week ago at the white house. they were optimistic rhetoric about getting a deal done before christmas, before the december 31 deadline. right now, the logic is, this came out of the meetings that were held between the white house liaison and the head of the staff director and the past week. we need large frames that we can offer to the principl princo when they begin negotiation they know where they are headed. >> bret: a lot of focus on the tax issue. republican side. what we haven't heard is the specifics about what the democrats are willing to do on entitlement reform. >> so given the fact of the election, the democrats believe they have an advantage here. don't sacrifice entitlement. you hear now from the leading democrats like dick durbin saying don't go after socia

and i think we need to talk about paul ryan. the big headline is on cliff ryan faces two paths, will he stick to ideological purity or compromise to get a deal. how influential is he? >> we haven't heard much from paul ryan. i was more intrigued with eric cantor, so often the thorn in the side for speaker boehner is now saying he wants to get in there and do a deal. >> it was definitely a more conciliatory tone. he didn't give too many specifics but it was a different tone. >> in some accounts it was cantor's pressure in leaving conservative house members against boehner a bit and that first time around that helps settle things a little bit. i thought cantor was saying publicly was the big tale and paul ryan i haven't heard much from yet. >> and the other people trying to get in are the governors especially the delaware governor jack markell on a conference call with joe biden and a dozen mayors went to washington, d.c. to lobby lawmakers. are states more scared of going off the fiscal cliff? >> sure. state budgets would be impacted dramatically and very bad for them. governors are very

and one just over 47% of the vote. in other words, did worse than john kerry in 2004. paul ryan denies that the president earned a mandate. let's listen. >> the president wins 330-some electoral votes, every battleground state with the exception of north carolina. does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so because they also re-elected the house republicans. so whether people intend it or not, we have divided government. >> so you don't think there's a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think the ideas we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. >> anyway, it turns out paul ryan is wrong. when you look at the raw vote, voters cast about 400,000 votes more for house democrats than for republicans and with votes still being counted, as rick said, that's expected to go to a million vote majority. my question is why are they getting into this whole thing? when we have elections, i worked for tip o'neill, tip never came out and said but we have a 40-seat majority in the house and we'll ha

medicare is to ignore the obvious. i don't want to go the paul ryan budget route of voucherrizing it, making it so expensive seniors can't pay for it but if we don't put our best talents together and make medicare a program that lasts beyond 12 years we are not meeting our obligation to the offices that we ran for. the last point, medicaid. what is medicaid? medicaid is insurance, health insurance for the poor. one out of three children in the state of illinois, their only health insurance is medicaid. more than half of the births in illinois, the prenatal care and well baby care all paid for by medicaid. but that's not the majority of what's spent on medicaid in my state. 60% is spent for the frail elderly and those with mental and physical disabilities who shall in institutional settings and they're broke. they've got social security, medicare and medicaid keeping them alive. when the paul ryan budget suggested cutting 37% out of medicaid my question to him is which group are you going to cut, paul? the children? the mothers having babies? or the frail elderly? so yes, we've got to

supported is the paul ryan deal, which reduces the deficit, pays down the debt, does not raise taxes, and it is a written plan that senator chambliss actually voted for. so i think they caught him on a tv station and he said something scraps that did not make sense. >> have you thought about changing the pledged in any way? >> again, i cannot change the pledge, because t it is,o me. it is not like people are promising this to me. >> it was your group. everybody associates the pledge with new. but that is very kind of them. republicans and democrats, not just republicans, and the democratic congressman from kentucky took the pledge. unfortunately, he broke the pledge and was defeated in the last election. people are a little unhappy that he pretended to be a conservative democrat and spent a lot of money and raised a lot of taxes and he lost. ben nelson, another democrat, the senator from nebraska, he got elected taking the pledge, said he would not raise taxes, but he did raise taxes when he voted for obamacare. there are 20 different taxes there, many of them directed at the middle

goes up. now this is not new, jon, this is what really mitt romney and paul ryan were running on, as they talked about it they got hammered again and again for not being specific on what tax deductions and loopholes were going to close. but this was the line for the republican standard bearer, the candidate. so when you hear these senators and congressmen talking about that and not raising tax rates, it's not a new position, it's not a backing down on some stance, it's really what the stance was. i think we are at the beginning part, the ten-yard line if you will of this whole fiscal cliff negotiation with a lot to go. jon: what are you hearing about which side is willing to bulge? this president just won re-election, pretty convincingly, promising to raise tax rates on the wealthist americans. republicans lost seats in the u.s. senate, what is the motivation for democrats to blink here? >> reporter: it's a tough position negotiating wise for republicans to be in, but the key point is that you're starting to hear things there republicans that they are willing to talk and begin to
